The "Te Deum" is the opening and most extensive movement of the "Service in A Major, Opus 63", and contains the only solo work for alto and tenor. The opening choral unison , preceded by an exuberant imitation of bell-ringing in the organ, sets the stage for a very festive work. The entire "Service in A Major" forms a very effective 37 minute concert piece. In keeping with its primary function as a work for the Episcopal liturgy, each movement stands alone quite well as an attractive, independent composition in the late Romantic style. English text.
